Cinderella....a dream is a wish your heart makes....

As a child I watched Disney's animated Cinderella over and over and over... it was my favorite princess story. I mean I literally would watch it everyday. I actually got it for Christmas this year on DVD!

When I saw they were making a live-action version of the film, I was skeptical. Many times the remake isn't as good as the original, but I truly did think this movie was magical.

This film was really well done. The cast, costumes, and animation were all amazing!

Lily James played an excellent Cinderella. She was a natural beauty and then was transformed into the princess she was meant to be before our eyes. 

Richard Madden is known for playing a fine prince. I know him from playing Robb Stark on Game of Thrones. He was a great choice for this role!

I loved the costumes. They were well put together and full of color! I wish I could have wore some of the beautiful ball gowns!

If you haven't ever watched Cinderella. It's a story of overcoming obstacles that life throws at you. Ella had a beautiful life until tragedy strikes her family. She is left with her stepmother who would rather treat Ella as a servant than a stepdaughter. Ella overcomes hurdles keeping her away from the ball and with a little help from her Fairy Godmother, she is able to get to the ball held at the palace by the Prince.

Please go watch it! It was such a good story. I think children and adults alike can appreciate the movie.

Before the movie even started, we got to watch Disney's short film called Frozen Fever. It was super cute! I loved Frozen, so I was looking forward to this short film. It didn't disappoint. It was funny, cute and entertaining all in a few short minutes to celebrate Anna's birthday!

All our favorite Frozen characters took a few new friends!

I can't wait until Frozen 2 comes out in a few years!

I would definitely recommend seeing Cinderella. I think it follows the animated film closely and it displays a good message to children. 

Have courage and be kind...

Until next time,

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!

I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:

Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Spring Break in Las Vegas

Once again we traveled to our favorite place.... LAS VEGAS! We had four days packed with fun. The weather was great while we were there. In Indiana, however, it was terrible, so a good week to miss!

By now everyone should know we are planners and love to get good deals. Well Las Vegas is a town of deals if you look close enough. Before we went we were able to snag some items from our MyVegas game on Facebook. We had two FREE night helicopter tours over the strip, a complimentary picture with the helicopter, two FREE show tickets to KA at MGM, two FREE show tickets to The Beatles LOVE at the Mirage, and two 2-for-1 Buffet tickets to the Mirage buffet. All those items together were valued at over $600. We paid $0 for them. I also got some items off Groupon for super cheap!

So before we even left we had planned out what nights we were doing what and so on. 
We arrived in Las Vegas on April 1st and headed directly to our hotel. This was our first time at Harrah's. We loved our location. …

Las Vegas Once Again!

The Hubby and I just made our 8th trip to Las Vegas! Our favorite place to vacation. Baby Girl got to stay with her Mimi and Pappy while we were gone.

We had a great trip filled with food, fun, and plenty of gambling. We didn't hit it big, but it was a great vacation of spending quality time with the Hubby.

We stayed 3 nights at the Rio. The Rio is just off the Strip. We like staying here because it's not near as busy as being on the Strip. 

The Rio recently added a KISS themed putt-putt golf course. We played and it was fun, but I am horrible! 

September is a huge month for us. We both had big birthdays (3-0... let's not talk about that) and our anniversary. So we both decided instead of buying gifts we would do something fun in Vegas. We decided to see a show and we picked Absinthe. 

It is SO worth the money. If you get offended by ANYTHING, please do not see it. It is acrobatics mixed with crude comedy. We had a great time! We saw this show when it first opened back in 2011 …
